GARMENT HANGER Application meaapru 20, 1927. Serial in. 1mm.
My invention relates broadl to garment hangers and more particular y to a coat hanger having means for protecting the garment supported thereby moths or other destructive vermin.
One of the objects of my invention is to rovide a simplified construction of coat lianger with a garment su porting bar attached thereto, the bar belng arrangedto enclose a moth preventive compound which may be exposed to the garments for distributing the moth preventing material and protecting the garments against attack by moths or other vermin.
Another object of my invention is to provide a garment hanger with a revolving foraminated tube carried thereby, the said tube containin moth preventive mate ial which may be ept in an agitated condition by the rotation of the foraminated tube for maintaining the moth preventing material in an active condition.
Still another object of my invention is to rovide a simplified construction of garment anger with a revolvable foraminated tube .thereon, said tube containing amoth reventive com ound which may be maintained active byvlrtue of the ability of the tube to be rotated as the garment is placed 'on or removed from the garment hanger.
Other and further objects of my invention will be understood from the specification hereinafter following by reference to the accompanying drawings wherein:
.Figure 1 is a frontelevation of the garment hanger of my invention showing the foraminated tube structure partially broken away and illustrated in cross-section; Fig. 2 illustrates the'garment hanger of my invention wherein the foraminated tube is shown in position preparatory to the insertion of the tube or the removal of the tube from the garment support; Fig. 3 illustrates the several parts of the foraminated tube structure employed in association with the garment han er; and Fig. 4 shows a modified form of a tu e carrying the moth preventive mixture, the tube being longitudinally slotted.
Referring to the drawings in detail, ref 6 erence characters 1 and 2 designate the shoulom the attack of deer arms of the clothes or coat hanger constructed ofwood or other materials arranged to be suspended between hook member 3. At the ends of the shoulder arms 1 and 2 I provide angle members 4 and 5, the angle members extending toward each other and projecting into the bushing members 6 and 7, which in turn fit into the ends of the foraminated tube structure 8. The tube structure 8 is shown perforated throughout its surface as represented at 9. Interiorly of the top structure I provide a moth preventive material 10, such as moth balls, gum camphor or other substance repugnant to vermin or moths. The foraminatcd ube 8 on its bushings 6 and 7 is free to revolve about inwardly extending ends of the angle members 4 and 5 as an axis, and by virtue of such revolution the contents of the foraminated tube are agitated for further propagating the moth preventive odors which might normally becozne stagnant should the material remain inac ive.
In order to permit of the rapid assembly of the foraminated tube structure with respect to the garment hanger, I provide a spring member 11 which normally presses against the end of the bushing 6 urging the foraminated tube and bushing 7 in abutment with the angle member 5. The inwardly projecting end of the angle member 4 is somewhat longer than the inwardly projecting end of the member 5, and in this way the foraminated tube is maintained in position with respect to the garment hanger.
In Fig. 4 I have shown in perspective view a modified construction of the rotatable tube. In this figure the tube isshown at 15 as solid throughout its area with the exception of a longitudinally extending slot 16 through which the odors from the moth preventive mixture may be propagated. Other forms of apertures may be provided in lieu of the circular apertures or the longitudinal slot.
The structure of my invention is capable of inexpensive manufacture on a quantity production basis. Standard parts may be used for the garment hanger and the support of my invention attached as an auxiliary to the standard garment hanger for the protect ion of garments carried by the hanger. While I have described my invention in one of its preferred embodiments, I desire that it be understood that modifications may be made and that no limitations upon the invention are intended other than are imposed by the scope of the appended claims.
What I claim as new and desire to secure by Letters Patent of the United States is as follows:
1. A garment hanger comprising a coatsupporting. member terminating at each end in one element of a rotatable bearing, a trouser-support rotatably mounted in the bearings, the said trouser support being in the form of a tube suitable for containin a moth preventive material and provided with terminal closures removable for the entrance of such material, said tube being perforated for the propagation of moth preventive odors by rotary movement of said tube.
2. In a device of the character described, a clothes suspension frame having angular arm extensions, a perforated tubular member, and caps detachably associated with the open extremities of said tubular member, there being axial apertures in said caps to freely receive the angular extensions of said arms.
